In the United States, the Mercedes-Benz E 350 is pretty much the working horse of the E-Class range, with its all-wheel drive 4Matic variant coming to its aid starting with the 2013 mid-cycle facelift.

The rather extensive refresh brought a number of new or improved safety and comfort features, apart from the almost completely reshaped exterior, especially in the front.

Car and Driver recently had a go in the two types of Mercedes-Benz E 350 available in the States, with both the rear-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive 4Matic variants being put to the test at the same time.

With both cars coming with the same Lunar Blue paint scheme and the no-cost Sport Styling package, there is nothing to differentiate the two from afar except for the 4Matic badging.

Now, considering that winter is already upon us, we were suspecting that the biggest confidence vote from the Car and Driver testers will be given to the E 350 4Matic, but it seems that the test drive wasn't an actual comparison between the two models. You might want to read their review for the bigger picture.
